I watched the Chicago Tonight video very intently to see if I could find anything interesting in the footage. Video link: http://www.wttw.com/chicagotonight/video/A1hO97qcWo7ViDL_rWniVH2LakYxNa7J To me the most interesting frame was at 5:26 when they show some of the books Vivian had in her collection as mentioned in the post by Wieland Willker. The one I found most interesting was the monograph of Gita Lenz who also had sort of a similar story of the discovery of her work, which in this case was discovered by an industry insider. Here is a quick synopsis about Gita Lenz on Aline Smithson's blog Lenscratch: http://lenscratch.blogspot.com/2010/10/gita-lenz.html I find it very intriguing that Vivian was so interested in Gita's work and perhaps her story. I also think that she was fairly aware of the work of her contemporaries. Not knowing the exact dates when these photos may have been taken, I see certain similarities in this photo by Vivian Maier... http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_YUrw6ooCZj4/TNGXScviKvI/AAAAAAAAA_A/65emTsi05Bg/s1600/color+3.jpg ... with this photo by Harry Callahan: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_MjHqFV54cGM/TQeevrnNO2I/AAAAAAAAFEA/lngQa2IZqvU/s1600/Harry_Callahan1.jpg
